With Flipped Learning, the core learning materials are delivered through viewing video clips prior to attending classes. Hence, the class time can be devoted to higher level learning activities, such as the application of the learning materials in problem solving, group discussions and collaborative learning with instant feedback and coaching support from teachers. Flipped learning facilitates active learning and higher level learning with support by teachers and their classmates.
